Getting account type. Personal or company/organization?


#1

Hi

I can’t find any way to determine if an account belongs to an individual or a company.

Is there any way for this?
Thanks
Omer

No, there’s no real programmatic distinction of the identity behind a Twitter account, whether it be human, animal, vegetable, algorithm, or company.

Well, that’s sad. I’d expect twitter would keep that sort of information.
Best thing I could find so far is checking the account description looking for a “http” or “.com”.
Company profiles usually have a URL in description.
Still, it doesn’t work very well.
